From Judy ~ 4/16/09

Dear Friends and Family,

This is just a quick note to let you all know that Steven Morrison (my youngest brother) passed away at home this morning at about 7:40 a.m. with his wife Deanna by his side. My Mom, sister Ellen and brother David and I are grateful that we all had a chance to tell Steve how much we love him during a visit on Monday afternoon. When we set up the time for our visit, we chose between Monday and this Friday which we now know would have been too late. What a comfort to have been able to have had the chance to say goodbye.

Most of you know that my Mom has been staying with us for the last month as she recuperates from a January fall. How good of God to arrange that Mom was here in NH during this time. She and all of us will miss Steve very much. At 51, his life was way too short.

At this point, I’m not sure what arrangements will be made but I’ll keep you posted.

Lots of love,


Quick note from Ruth Anne: If you would like to see a picture of Judy with her brother, this is the post from back in 2008, asking for prayer for him.

I saw this church sign while running errands Saturday afternoon in my hometown of Worth, Illinois. After I got what I needed at Ace Hardware, I just had to take a few extra minutes and snap a picture of it. :-)

Fireproof the Movie ~ September 26th

On Friday, September 26, FIREPROOF will open in more than 800 theaters nationwide. The new movie from the creators of Facing the Giants is an action-packed love story about a firefighter, his wife ... and a marriage worth rescuing!

While this faith-based film is flying under the Hollywood radar screen, real people in real communities across the country are rallying behind it. In fact, it will open in 95 more cities than originally planned thanks to local people buying 1,000 tickets to bring it there!

I don't know when I've been more excited about the opening of a movie. I hope you will see FIREPROOF on its opening weekend. Hollywood judges a movie based on how it does in its first three days, so it's important to go September 26-28.

See you at the movies!
